Why further your education on patient safety?
The Covid19 crisis has made it clear that optimal care for patients and protection of healthcare workers necessitate constant adaptation to emerging risks. This applies in crises, but also in the daily operations of a complex socio-technical system. Greater patient safety requires a change of perspective away from reactive behavior in response to errors, and toward a forward-looking, solution-oriented approach to risks. Continuing education with a focus on this paradigm change makes it possible to realign views and develop behaviors that can help you work more effectively in the future.
The course aims to deal with risks in a forward-looking, solution-oriented manner.
In Focus: The Human Factor
This certificate is based on the systemic understanding of the problem of patient safety in the clinical environment. The teaching units focus in particular on the contributing organizational factors such as safety culture and “the human factor”. Participants learn about successful concepts from the high-security organization of aviation and practice transferring them to clinically relevant situations using case studies from their respective work environments.
Our lecturers are proven scientists, safety specialists from aviation (Lufthansa Flight Safety Department and Lufthansa Aviation Training) or experts with many years of practical implementation experience in patient safety projects in departments, hospitals and hospital operators.
